Hey.

I thought we need a thread where we can talk about our personal way of playing XTC.


This is not for questioning 2.0, its just to share your thoughts about the mod. What do you like or hate? Which playstyle do you prefer? Did you changed something in your game? Show some nice screens or vids. For me its always the capships. I love those new huge ships, they are right up my alley.

For the beginning here are two short vids about the nicely upgraded Xenons in XTC, they are very dangerous. :grin:
Part 1 shows that you just need luck, the bailing chance is set at 10%. Part 2 shows the salvage after shield reloading and some small fixes to the Scram Cannon, so it can hit those nasty little Xenon fighters.

Hmmm well first of all XTC is AWESOME!!!
About starting the game:
-Either as a trader(small trade runs up to stations here and there then working my way up to complexes and so on)
-Or as a fighter but I`m waiting until 2.0 to do that(and to write Vol. II of my guide/story)
The only thing I don`t really like is the lack of a cockpit(but you can find a compatible mod out there) and the starts(I would really like a Split like Terran start, also a place where you can buy ATF ships)
Oh and I love those huge new ships as well :)) I remember seeing a Kha`ak M2+ in action and I just stood there...........admiring it........then I died :lol:

Ask and ye shall receive.

The attached .zip will give you a Terran start with a Rapier Raider, 2 AEMPCs, 1 MJ of shielding, and a universe that isn't too happy with you. Granted, you should be able to patch things up with most of them easily if you try, but the Paranid aren't in the mood for excuses.

It also adds the ATF ships to the New Hampshire Shipyard and the New Entry Space Dock. I just added the ships, so if there are any bugs with the ships or balance issues, I didn't fix them. Use them at your own risk.

EDIT: To get the ATF ships requires a new start.

Here we go, another fight vid. Its set during a long patrol mission, which i accepted with my Taipan, rank Crusader. I cannot show the entire mission, the vid would be way too long. But this ~13 min. part should give you an idea what you have to prepare yourself. ;)


This was the result:

I made a few shots from my actual game. Just purchased the Olympos, so i had to do a quick photo session. :)

The discussion is good, but I think the pictures should be moved in this (http://www.thexuniverse.com/threads/21596-XTC-Player-Pictures?highlight=XTC+Screenshots) topic.

Pics in here could maybe different from the original XTC, and they're not meant to be "better" than the dev pics. But if indeed absolutely necessary... :(

Not necessary :) It's just an option that you can also choose to use, if you want - if you'd like to see some of your best screenshots in the loading screen selection for 2.0, you're free to post it there as well. (Though, ofc, it shouldn't feature ships that aren't XTC's, if that's what you meant by "different from original xtc", and should generally fit to the resolution requirements). But that's no obligation - up to you to choose the if, when and all the other questions ;)

I am also greatly enjoying XTC.
I've got the the whole universe unlocked now; exploring the whole place was cool. :)

My favorite ship is the Boreas. I always liked using Otas from all the way back with X3:Rs Xtended!

Un-nerfing the Xenon is great. :) TC disappointed me by making Xenon no threat beyond PBEs at the beginning. :(

The Terrans seem to have been weakened in inverse proportion to the bump Xenon got in the restoration. :shock:
They're supposed to be the most advanced race in the galaxy and now they're the same as all the others! :?

I've noticed this too, a little irksome being a pretty staunch Terran. Nothing a little mod-modding can't fix though.
Once the Xenon I comes out like in AP, un-nerfing should be a real treat with new active Xenon scripts.

Daww the team is doing that? There goes my week to Photoshop, looks like. :o

The pictures are neat skyline, and I'm fascinated by 17 million credits for a single patrol, haha. ;)

Yeah that video was cool. I want a Taipan now, that thing looks amazing. I've never played with anything larger than the Yokohama you get at the terran start, so it'll be neat to try and get into a capital in 2.0. The wait is getting to me though, I might have to reinstall TC and play XTC until 2.0 is out.
